It really is almost that simple -- and we've already done the bit of
extra work to write a loader at our end.

However, it is good to review what the data will look like so we can
fix the loader if need be. I propose is we load into our staging
server first, have a review and then load into live. (We may also want
to think about a lang attribute as all the descriptions are in hebrew
:) )

I'm also cc'ing my colleagues Anna Powell-Smith and Friedrich
Lindenberg who have been working on this.

Let's load what we've got (which we can do very rapidly and then
include the 2011 budget).
